Did you know Hireko offers a full line of specialty ferrules to re-shaft a number of name brand clubs and do it the right way? Well, we do! A few companies such as Callaway, Nike, Ping and TaylorMade require specialty ferrules other than what are commonly found. The reason is many of the heads are counter-bored and requires part of the ferrule to fit inside the hosel or the outside diameter of the hosel is larger than normal and requires a special ferrule.
While our catalog and website explain what specialty ferrule goes into what models, there are a few additions I would like to add to those. For example, the ferrule for the TaylorMade R7 irons will not only fit the R7 and the R9, but also the newer Burner irons too. The specialty ferrule for many of the Callaway woods will also fit the Diablo and the FT-9.
Many of the OEM clubs use .350” shafts but many of our replacement wood ferrules are sized to allow the use of 0.335” which are more common and offer a wider variety. Aside from the product specific model, we offer a generic 0.350” shaft conversion ferrule to use a 0.335” shaft. However, we do stock the popular replacement models from Callaway, Ping and TaylorMade to use the original 0.350” shaft size as well.
We even offer ferrules for face angle or called “clock” ferrule. The 2º Ferrule for TaylorMade (& Ping) woods as well as the 2º Ferrule for Callaway woods fit most of the newer models. By rotating the ferrule into the head you are able to change the face angle instead of accepting how it came from the factory. Instructions are included, but make sure to use the flap and the alignment line marked on these unique ferrules to alter the lie and effective loft via face angle.
So next time you have a re-shaft of a name brand driver you can re-shaft with confidence and do it right the first time.
